Turtle Project
Retreat: Amanwana
Indonesia > Moyo

Every year between December and April sea turtles come to lay their eggs on Moyo’s beaches. In the past, the locals villagers used to dig up the eggs and sell them to markets and the neighboring island of Sumbawa. Nowadays Amanwana buys the eggs at a high price from the villagers, and re-bury the eggs on protected shores, monitoring them until natural hatching, 60 days later.
